Review for Castle Forbes Lime Shaving Cream

I must start by saying that everything about this shaving cream just screams "quality". From the packaging, to the glass jar, to the fine ingredients, one can tell that Castle Forbes in one fine brand. Granted, it costs more then your run of the mill drug store Barbasol but it's more then a worthy buy if you're looking for something a little bit different.

As everyone who has tried this shaving cream has testified, Castle Forbes Lime is VERY fragrant. That sweet lime smell is simply intoxicating. It reminds me of sipping a margarita on a hot day.

Well, on my first use of this cream I lathered up a nickel sized amount with my Omega shaving brush. The lather was abundant and absorbed water as well as any other shaving cream I've used. It yielded a very fragrant and creamy lather and provided excellent lubrication for my Art of Shaving Chrome Edition Manual Razor. It is my opinion that that lather was similar to that of the meringue. The whole experience was like making myself the filling for a Key Lime Pie

Anyways, my brush produced enough lather for two passes. One with the grain and one across the grain. The shave was both close and comfortable and left my face feeling refreshed without being dried out. These are my main criteria for judging shaving creams. The Castle Forbes passed the test and is now a mainstay on my bathroom counter top. I really do like this shaving cream and will make sure to always have a supply in my shaving arsenal. You can too, right here.
